1994 Ford Probe Hatchback GT 2dr Hatchback


Review

The Ford Probe GT is a great fun to drive car. It has great reliability. Nothing was replace on the car until around 110,000 miles. The Probe still has its original transmission at 142,000 miles. It handles like a true sports car. It can really hold the road and has a super fast take off for a 2.5 V6. PS: It gets gas mileage and be even faster with premium gas.


Best Features

Its speed, handling, exterior style, and reliability.


Worst Features

All of the parts for this car are very expensive. It also is not comfortable at all!

Review

As the single owner of a '94 purchased 9/94, I can't believe I still have it. It is still plugging away, although I have had some major issues with it over the years. Oil leak, transmission, and the engine light that stayed on for 2 years and WASN'T the O2 sensor! (they kept telling me it was and changed it twice). I will agree strongly that the seats that are rotting, the liner where my hands have been (by window) is rotting, and the red is horrible! It's been painted twice and is now fading again. The trunk is massive (hauled a dining room set in 3 trips). It does idle rough, but could probably use a tuneup. But I have loved this car for 12 years. Need a new one and don't know what to get now.


Best Features

The trunk room. The exterior design and the comfort of the interior.


Worst Features

Red color that doesn't fade every 5 years...less plastic and more durable accessories. Sturdier fabric in interior.

Review

This was my first car. I am 16 years old. I love this car and I would recommend this car for a first car because it' s reliable and it gets great gas mileage. And my insurance is not bad either. As the title says, I love this car.


Best Features

Gas mileage, exterior.


Worst Features

More back seat leg room.

Review

I bought this car about 2 months ago and have had nothing but problems. This car has 164,000 miles on it. The engine is very healthy but everything else is falling apart. The transmission is very fickle and can never decide what gear to be in. The anti-lock light is on on the dash. The brakes make weird noises. The sunroof is rusting badly. The interior is absolutely falling apart and makes all sorts of funky clunking and cracking noises. The AC makes horrid noises and barely works. In Florida, this is not good! I will never by a Ford Probe GT again and don't recommend them to anyone. Horrible choice.


Best Features

Ample pick up, fun handling.


Worst Features

Make the sunroof glass, not metal. AC compressor needs to last longer and not make noise. ABS system needs to be tweaked. Automatic transmission needs to feel like a sports car, not a Toyota Tercel.
